"Trim the Fat" Thursday

Hey gang! Sorry I flaked last week and missed the update. This new puppy is all kinds of adorable, but boy, he has seriously kept me on my toes since he arrived last week. I think I've finally got a handle on things, so let's recap the past 2 weeks.

I finished the 4 days of torture known as the Flat Belly Diet Jumpstart. I ended up with an overall loss of 4 lbs, which was great! What's even greater is that I've kept it off despite working out sparingly and not diving right in to the regular FBD. I've been doing pretty well with staying off sodas and other sugary drinks. And I was doing really well with staying off desserts until the last couple of days. Suffice it to say, PMS is here. I did make it back to my 5am workout on Monday and am trying to figure out when to schedule my regular workouts now that my Fall schedule is in full swing. This is proving to be more of a challenge than I expected. 5am, while great, is so hard for me because I'm such a night owl. And I don't have time to nap during the day, which makes me not very nice to be around come about 1pm. Such a quandry!

Anyway, here are my goals for this week.

1. Implement some of the FBD recipes into the mix
2. Get in 3 workouts
3. Take the puppy for a walk/exercise twice this week

So, how did you guys do? Tell me all about it!

Oh, and be sure to check in later tonight for the announcement about my first of 7 days of giveaways!

Is it Thursday already?? My week is just flying!

I have done okay this week. I need to get back to a more "normal" routine. And I have GOT to exercise. Next Monday is the registration day for water aerobics...and I will be there with my credit card in hand...

Congrats on the loss! Today is the last day of my jumpstart so I put the good & bad parts in my blog post.

Hormones suck.

Great job, Angie! I can imagine that the puppy is ...keeping you running. Good luck with that 5am thing. I know I could never do it so more power to you! And speaking of fall schedules, I can't wait to hear how the new school goes!

I did not lost as much as you but at least i lost something so yay!

I agree with Michelle. Unfortunately, 5 am is a time my body only wants to sleep. But I am so proud of you and you CAN do this! We can discuss strategies and encourage each other this weekend!

I have been doing well this week with workouts and eating, but to the exclusion of almost everything else. We are still trying (okay, hubby is fine - *I* am still trying) to get caught up after all our busy-ness this summer. I'm making progress, slowly but surely!
